He became a professor at the Faculty and head of the Departmental School of Birthing. In 1890 he founded the Œuvre de la maternité which promoted breastfeeding. On several occasions he occupied the post of president of the Société médicale de Nancy, and in 1912, that of the Société Obstetricale de France.
